|Founder(s)||Hermann Blohm and Ernst Voss|
|Parent||ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems|
Blohm + Voss (also shown historically as Blohm & Voss or Blohm und Voss), is a German shipbuilding and engineering works. It is a subsidiary of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems. ThyssenKrupp announced in December 2011 that it had agreed the sale of Blohm + Voss' civil shipbuilding division to British investment company STAR Capital Partners, pending regulatory approval. The company built aircraft through Hamburger Flugzeugbau before and during World War II.
It was founded on April 5, 1877, by Hermann Blohm and Ernst Voss as a general partnership named Blohm & Voss (Blohm und Voss English: "Blohm and Voss"). A shipyard was built on the island of Kuhwerder, near the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, covering 15,000 m² with 250 m of water frontage and three building berths, two suitable for ships of up to 100 metres length. The company's logo is a simple dark blue rectangle with rounded corners bearing the white letters "Blohm+Voss". Until 1955 the company name was shown with the ampersand.
The company has continued to build ships and other large machines for 125 years. Despite being almost completely demolished after the end of World War II, it now builds warships both for the Deutsche Marine and for export (see MEKO), as well as oil drilling equipment and ships for numerous commercial customers.
History during the Third Reich 
With the rise of the Nazi Party to power in 1933, Germany's rearmament in violation of the Versailles Treaty was begun. This began a sudden change in fortune for the company, run then by brothers Rudolf and Walther Blohm, which was taken out of a deep crisis. Blohm & Voss, which had until then specialized in shipbuilding, also began to design and build aircraft for use by both the German state airline, pre-war Deutsche Luft Hansa, and the air-force, Luftwaffe. The aeronautical section of the company was named Hamburger Flugzeugbau, therefore the first planes it produced had the code "Ha", but in September 1937 the aviation subsidiary was renamed Abteilung Flugzeugbau der Schiffswerft Blohm & Voss which was later replaced by "BV". Particularly noteworthy were the large flying boats the company produced-especially the largest aircraft designed, built and flown by any of the Axis forces, the Bv 238, and their ingenious approaches to aircraft building that even featured asymmetric designs.
From July 1944 to April 1945 Blohm & Voss used inmates of its own concentration subcamp at its shipyard in Hamburg-Steinwerder. The camp was a subcamp to the Neuengamme concentration camp. Now a memorial stands in the former site of the camp and the company continues to pay an undisclosed amount to the Fund for Compensation of Forced Laborers.

|Blohm + Voss Shipbuilding|
From 1933 to 1945, Blohm & Voss also operated the Hamburger Flugzeugbau aircraft company. Although initially given the factory code Ha (for the factory's official name), the link with Blohm & Voss shipyards proved too strong and therefore the early aircraft designs were called "Blohm & Voss, type Ha..." followed by the design number. To end this confusion, in 1938 the Reichsluftfahrtministerium gave in to the unavoidable and changed the company code to BV.
Aircraft and projects designed under the Ha and BV designations can be found at
- Blohm & Voss BV 40 glider interceptor
- Blohm & Voss Ha 135 Two seat single engine sports biplane 1933
- Blohm & Voss Ha 136 experimental single seat single engine low wing advanced trainer
- Blohm & Voss Ha 137 prototype dive bomber
- Blohm & Voss BV 138 military patrol flying-boat (early versions designated as Ha 138)
- Blohm & Voss Ha 139 long-range seaplane
- Blohm & Voss Ha 140 torpedo bomber seaplane (prototype)
- Blohm & Voss BV 141 reconnaissance (asymmetric)
- Blohm & Voss BV 142 reconnaissance + transport
- Blohm & Voss BV 143 glide bomb (prototype)
- Blohm & Voss BV 144 transport
- Blohm & Voss BV 155 high-altitude interceptor (formerly Me 155)
- Blohm & Voss BV 222 Wiking (Viking), transport flying-boat
- Blohm & Voss BV 226, a long range radar homing glide bomb
- Blohm & Voss BV 237, a single seat single engine asymmetric layout ground attack aircraft project development of the Bv 141
- Blohm & Voss BV 238 flying-boat (prototype), the single largest Axis aircraft design of the war years to fly
- Blohm & Voss BV 246 Hagelkorn (Hailstone), long-range radar-homing glide bomb
- Blohm & Voss BV P.111 – a design similar to the 237, except that it was a flying boat with three engines.
- Blohm & Voss BV P.170 – a 1942 design with three engines on the forward wing with the cockpit in the aft.
Although Hamburger Flugzeugbau re-emerged after the war and, under different names and ownerships, continued to build aircraft until the present day, this company has no more ties to the Blohm & Voss shipyards.
